Becca is from Traverse City and Mike was stationed in Traverse City with the Coast Guard when they met. The rest is history. Although their wedding is going to be in the Detroit area, they wanted to make sure they had some photos of the area of the state that is so dear to them. Old Mission Peninsula’s lighthouse and wineries and orchards and downtown Traverse City played as backdrops for the photos. What a beautiful afternoon.
Alexa and Dax are Chicago residents, but truly have a passion for Detroit. Their wedding will be in Detroit in 2016 and they came to “the D” for their e-session photos. We stopped at a few of their favorite spots in Detroit to do some photos. They are big fans of the Movement festival, so we had to stop by Hart Plaza for a few shots.
Stay tuned for more beautiful shots from their wedding day in 2016.
Jenny and Robert are both young physicians and so getting a few minutes with them together was hard. We had a perfect evening in Birmingham, Michigan’s Quarton Lake Park.
It was great hanging out with them for an hour or so and learning a little more about them and their upcoming July wedding. Enjoy!
Trying to find a perfect day to photograph Brandon and Kial this winter hasn’t been the easiest. Snowstorms, cold and work schedules have all come into play. We finally picked a nice sunny day to meet up.
Our first stop was the Detroit Public Library. What a fantastic old structure that most people probably don’t even know about. After wandering the halls of the library, we headed out to Belle Isle for some outdoor fun.
Brandon and Kial are having their wedding reception at the Casino on the island, so we wanted to get some shots around the outside of the building. Although the sun was shining beautifully, the temps were down right frigid. I think we lasted about 1/2 hour outside before calling it a day.
I look forward to a beautiful fall setting on the island.
Ariel contacted me a few weeks ago about doing a Bonnie and Clyde themed engagement session. After a meeting and some collaboration, we came up with a fusion of Bonnie and Clyde and 20s themed. Their outfits combined with some backgrounds that I chose, which lent themselves to that style, gave us a great afternoon. We were even blessed with a “giant snowflake” shower at the end to give us a totally different look. Ed and Ariel have a June wedding planned. Enjoy!
Erin and Joe chose some of their favorite spots in Detroit for their engagement session. Michigan Central Depot started the session, along with dog Louie. We then headed to the riverfront and some fun shots along the river with views of the Ren Cen. Then we moved toward the Ford Field and Comerica area with a nice shot of the Ren Cen in the background. The Fox Theater and a quick stop at Town Pump rounded out our images before moving to Greektown for some early evening shots with the great neon lights.
